Eagles of Death Metal joined U2 onstage during their show last night (Dec. 7) at Paris's AccorHotels Arena, marking the group's first performance in Paris since the city's deadly terrorist attacks last month, which included a strike on one of their shows at the Bataclan concert hall.
Following the show, which included a cover of Patti Smith's "People Have The Power" as well as a performance of the band's own "I Love You All The Time," Eagles of Death Metal issued a statement thanking U2 for their gestures of support. "We want to offer our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for everything our brothers in U2 did for us in the aftermath of the November 13 attacks," wrote frontman Jesse Hughes. "They reminded us that the bad guys never take a day off, and therefore we rock ’n rollers cannot either...and we never will. We are incredibly grateful to U2 for providing us the opportunity to return to Paris so quickly, and to share in the healing power of rock ‘n roll with so many of the beautiful people -- nos amis -- of this great city."
